Leading Bangkok-based international real estate developer, Country Group Development, is bringing Capella, one of the world's most prestigious luxury hotel brands, to the Thai capital. Mr. Ben Taechaubol, CEO and director of Country Group Development, was joined by Mr. Nicholas M. Clayton, CEO of Capella Hotel Group Asia and senior representatives from both companies to mark the property's official topping off ceremony on March 8th with the hotel scheduled to open in Summer 2018.

Capella Bangkok is an integral part of the unprecedented luxury residential and hotel development known as The Chao Phraya Estate, which occupies an expansive 35-2-68 Rai (approximately 14.2 acre) site on the east bank of the city's legendary River of Kings.

Capella's award-winning luxury all-suites concept is recognised amongst the finest hospitality brands in the world. Capella hotels have been awarded the highest accolades in the industry for offering guests exceptional private facilities, extraordinary design and memorable experiences in stunning locations. The brand's select destinations currently include Singapore, Germany, Mexico, the Caribbean and New Zealand.

Mr. Nicholas M. Clayton, Chief Executive Officer of Capella Hotel Group Asia said, "We are delighted to announce Capella Bangkok as one of three distinctive new properties to be launched in Asia within the next 15 months. Capella Shanghai will open in late Spring 2017, Capella Ubud follows in the Autumn and Capella Bangkok will welcome guests in Summer 2018. Our Bangkok property will showcase the rich heritage of its location while delivering the unique style and authentic experiences our discerning guests have come to expect."

Offering a whole new level of personalised facilities and upscale services, the city's first Capella hotel will comprise 101 guest suites and river villas with exceptional views of the Chao Phraya waterway. The hotel will also feature a bar, two gourmet restaurants, and a riverfront ballroom complete with specialty function rooms.

"We specifically selected Capella Hotel Group for this project in order to elevate the standard of bespoke luxury available to guests in Bangkok," said Mr. Ben Taechaubol, Chief Executive Officer of Country Group Development. "As one of the two international hospitality anchors within the development we could not have hoped for a more respected hotel partner."

The Chao Phraya Estate is Country Group Development's largest project to date, valued at 32 billion baht (USD918 million). Capella Bangkok will stand proudly alongside Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok and Four Seasons Private Residences Bangkok at Chao Phraya River with each property set to take its place as iconic landmarks on Bangkok's longest private waterfront promenade.
